president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campaigning, picking up chec checks. be fair, maybe he learned something from a month-and-a-half ago. >
that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they a
, everybody. i'm tom here at msnbc headquarters and we're watching president obama there in hilliard, ohio, greeting fans at a campaign there giving a stump speech and bringing up specifically parts of the jobs numbers. that is the big news we saw today. unemployment kicked up ever so slightly to 7.9%. but there was a big boost in hiring with the official number at 171,000 jobs added over the course of the month. that's much higher than expected. the analysts had predicted something lower, around 120ish. we want to bring in our morning power panel. jared bernstein, ron ensanna, cnbc contributor and author of "ohio to make a fortune from the bill biggest bailout in history" and dana se abank. >> jared, i want to start with you. we've got the numbers took front. we've got more jobs added last month than expected. but the unemployment rate picked up from september. why? >> more people entered the labor force, about 580,000 people. now, these monthly numbers jump around. and about 400,000 or so, according the to that part of the survey. the labor force stayed the same, but people in the labor

satisfied with their service? president obama spoke to our next guest yesterday from the situation room about how to eliminate any bureaucratic roadblocks that delay the power restoration effort. here now is tom coombs. you're regulated at the local, state, and federal level. the prices you charge are regulated. the terms of your service are regulated. your construction plans are regulated. your investments are regulated. do all of those facts when i put them together with year after year we see americans living for a whole week without power, are they connected? >> well, i think the u.s. utility industry invests some $20 billion a year in the transition thing. we do have to get approval from regulators, but the regulators have been very understanding and the need to keep reliable service, which is issue number one, but you can build the best electric system, which we have, but something like hurricane sandy comes along with extended winds that knock down power lines, with title surges that go into the tunnels in new york, with major two feet of snow out in west virginia. and it's going

, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc

tomorrow night. both the romney and obama campaigns have canceled scheduled events already due to sandy. so if you're in an affected area, stay inside, stay off the roads and stay tuned into msnbc. all right. now, let's turn to the final countdown. i wanted to sing that but i don't have a very good singing voice. but we're in the final days and we can all agree that the way a political candidate runs a race is important, but how a candidate closes the deal is crucial. and with just one more week left until election day, this is when the candidates' closing strategies kick in. while we've harped on battleground states, a new analysis by the associated press shows in the case to 270, may come down to 106 counties. these are counties with names like hamilton county, ohio, loudoun county, virginia, and hills bborough county, florida. they're the same ones that george w. bush won in 2004 and that then senator obama wan in 2008. these are the swing voters. and part of the candidates' closing strategy is to hit at as many of these areas as possible before election day. because the latest polls sho
keynoter from the convention, being, you know, side by side with president obama and praising president obama. do you have any president with what your republican colleague in new jersey did yesterday? >> no. president obama is doing what he had to do. governor christie's doing what he feels he has to do. but i lived and breathes politicked. to show you how i've become obsessed with the tragedy in my district i got a colleague from msnbc asking what governor christie said about president obama. christie attacked him based on past performance. i'm living in a bubble right now. i had no idea. if i had to look at it overall and stark politics it's a short-term benefit to the president. by election day, people will make whatever decision they're going to make, obviously hime hoping for governor romney. president obama's doing what he has to do. it's important for the country. >> thank you so much. thanks for what you're doing for all of your folks and good luck to you. >> thank you. >> in the district. airports are shut down by hurricane sandy but beginning to resume operations slowly. this
it is, it has president obama and governor romney in a dead heat. 46-46. and recent quinnipiac new york times, cbs news poll shows a president with a 5 point lead in ohio. karl rove questions the validity of that particular poll. he says, quote, that survey gives democrats a plus 8 advantage in turnout. the same advantage democrats had in 2008. that assumption, writes karl rove, is to put it gently, absurd. joining us from the weekly starred, kelly jane, is karl rove on to something, do you think? >> possibly. you know, i have to admit i have trouble understanding this obsession that pollsters and pundits have with the numbers and kind of reminds me when i was a kid and couldn't wait until december 25th to see what i got for christmas and wrapped a little of the gift. nobody wants to wait a week and everybody has to know what's going on now. stuart: if you look at things now. the romney camp have to admit the momentum they the got falling the debates has stalled and they're actually in a dead heat. my point is, the momentum has stalled and that has to worry them. >> you're right, it's a
